26 Tammuz 5781 

Our tradition teaches that the earlier a source, the closer it is to the Truth.  

The giving of the Torah at Har Sinai can be compared to a great rock cast into the ocean.  The ripples spreading out from it are the generations following that great event.  The farther the ripples spread from the origin of impact, the less defined they become.  This depicts how the Torah is handed down.

It's clear to many people of our generation that what we have today is a long way from what started at Har Sinai and I don't just mean timewise.  Here is a good example...

Chief rabbi: Don't move to Israel if it means secular neighbors
Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef says ultra-Orthodox Jews should not move to Israel if it means living in a non-Haredi area with secular Israelis who pose a threat to their spiritual wellbeing.  Yosef said that Jews who live in predominantly Haredi neighborhoods in the Diaspora should remain where they are.

What are we to think of a Torah scholar - a "Chief Rabbi" - who so corrupts the words of the Torah itself?  Today, we have a government full of reshaim and some are calling for the abolishment of the Rabbanut.  Maybe this is ultimately why.    

HaGaon HaRav Meir Mazuz, Rosh Yeshivas Kisei Rachamim, slammed the Bennett-Lapid government during his weekly shiur on Motzei Shabbos, saying that the government has no zechus for its existence since it rebelled against Hashem.

“The Reform are the enemies of Hashem – this whole government is such,” HaRav Mazuz said.

“They want to give the Reform a place by the Kosel, they want to the buses to run on Shabbos. This state doesn’t have a right to exist. Yisrael rebelled against its Elokim.”

“What do we need to do? We can only daven,” the Rosh Yeshivah concluded.
HKB"H is going to dismantle it all and replace these poor substitutes with the real deal - a rebuilt Beit HaMikdash, a reconstituted Sanhedrin and a King on David's throne!
